Grace Ukasoanya is an associate professor in the Counselling Psychology program at the University of Manitoba. She is a former Fulbright scholar and a Carnegie fellow. Her main focus in teaching is to promote wellness as a crucial aspect of the counselling process and its outcome. Her current research agenda places importance on wellness, career development, and symbolic culture within marginalized communities. She currently investigates the experiences of racial minority individuals and groups in terms of their health and well-being as fundamental human rights. In her research, teaching, and mentoring of graduate students, she applies salutogenic, existential, and socio-ecological approaches. Grace enjoys playing board games, laughing, meditating for wellness, and taking walks in the neighbourhood.
